Tesco just delivered

limit of 3 of everything

Milk,fruit,yogurt,bread,ice cream all arrived

No loo roll etc but i have got that now

There are ways to get round the min amount but i am not going to do it or share how

all arrived packed in bags as they are not coming in anymore

If you are new to online groceries and find something is not available then click on rest of shelf,for example i usually buy milk by the pint and they are not available,i clicked on rest of shelf and there was loads of milk in different sizes

Kitkat are going bust then, aren't they.

Just buy several bags of milk and keep them in the snowbank in the back garden.

The Blue Buus... is callin us... Driver, where you
How do you feel about NHS staff getting separate hours at Iceland and Asda?

I've been hearing a bit of stuff of some staff abusing the system by dragging along friends and family or anecdotally about NHS staff having ID stolen.

The latter of that is nonsense as you need photo ID to match your face!

I have mixed feelings on it, as I do the right thing and use a basket for the fam and not a huge trolley piling shit in, but then I see some staff members doing just that.
